Sharepoint AD security group, email address, sending alerts
Posted on 2012-03-15
I am running Sharepoint 2010.
I have a mail enabled security group. When I send an alert to this group I get an error saying that the group does not have an email addess.
I can send to the groups email address in outlook fine and it shows up in the GAL.
If I go into Sharepoint security and I manually edit the group. I can add in an email address for the group. If I enter in the email address maunally I can send alerts to the group.
Is this correct? Shouldn't Sharepoint read the groups email address directly from AD when I add in the group to the security list on the site?
Thank you for your help
